Nice hotel but won't return
This is resort is okay, but it’s not worth the big price tag. Out of all the inclusive resorts I have stayed at in Mexico, this is my least favourite so far. Here’s some pros and cons: Pros: dinner options were really good, staff is amazing, and the spa is great (for a big price). Mario at the pool was awesome! Cons: rooms are old and in need of maintenance (i.e., lights didn’t work and I got zapped by the outlet, AC was not consistent, bathtub didn’t hold water), the options for lunch are terrible and my husband and I both got food poisoning from the Barefoot Grill, the pool area is so packed you can’t find a place to sit (especially if you don’t get down there by 9am), the resort is pretty small and doesn’t have much to do other than battling the crowds poolside, people are smoking everywhere including their balconies which is very unpleasant, there are outdoor weddings almost everyday making it very loud each night, the night life is poor (just entertainment in the lobby or theatre) which are both meh, constant sales people are trying to sell you the vacation club scam, everything is an extra charge (nice tequila, use of their cabanas, scented oil for the massage, etc.), the App didn’t work for us the first day (our room service order just never showed up), and even though we let them know it was our honeymoon, they did nothing to make it special (maybe if we were a “preferred member”). We wouldn’t return to this resort.

I really enjoyed my stay. My room was beautiful. I had a great view of the ocean. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bartenders at the pool bar were awesome and took great care of everyone. The food was really good too. I would definitely stay here again.

This is our second stay at Secrets/Dreams Vallarta Bay. The first stay was on the Secrets side, and we had an amazing time which made us fall in love with the Secrets/Dreams brand. However, our most recent stay on the Dreams side has us reconsidering the brand. - The limited dining options for Families had us returning to the same location every night for dinner which was the Mexican restaurant since it was the most kid friendly of all options. The buffet was a close second but had extremely limited options. *Pro tip: if traveling with kids please bring your own non-spill cups. The resort has done away with plastic straws which is understandable. Would like to see paper straws as an option in their place. - Most of our time was spent at the pools and while cleaned every morning they always seemed to be dirty, and water had a cloudy/greenish tint at times. Pool flooring was inconsistent as some areas were smooth and some were extremely rough causing scrapes and nicked manicures. In my opinion, more focus needs to be made around the pool area. All in all, we had a good time. Although not good enough to justify coming back for a third time.

The photos are very deceiving. Property is kinda run down especially the rooms. Omgosh, the furniture and fixtures all need a lift. The matresses are in dire need of change, the sofas are gritty, it’s a very dark room because of the dark furniture and it definitely screams 90’s. The food is so so, only good stiff can be found in the Tamarindo Mexican restaurant, the rest were meh especially the Japanese resto. The only saving grace was the excellent service everywhere (again, except for the Japanese resto). If it weren’t for the staff, we will not think of coming back. The drinks are tasty though esp. the Mango margarita. They have superstar employees: Karina of guest services, Oliver of main resto, Gustavo at front desk, Luis at Castaway and the girl with braids and glasses serving drinks at the lobby (sorry, I forgot her name but I think it starts with a P). The thing that I appreciated the most especially as a parent is tthe Kids club. The ladies there do a wonderful job. please tip the ladies there, we give a couple of them $5 each per day which is a very small price to pay considering how much fun your kids will have and they are in safe hands. My son Rocco didn’t want to leave and always asking to go to kids club. Adriana stands out though, she’s a natural with kidsand just so pleasant. We also enjoyed the nightly outdoor entertainment and the entertainment at the lobby especially the silent disco and live singer singing really good, popular songs.
